Happy to present FAST, BUT SLOW, BUT UP, BUT DOWN, BUT WILD, BUT SENSITIVE led by Akira Yoshida included in the Summer International contemporary dance Program organized by NOD.
Where: NOD Nuova Officina della Danza , Via Mantova 34 Torino – Italy
When: July 27 – 30
Deadline for applications: June 10th
My exploration begins with the transformation of the language of Breakdance, turning it into other forms, qualities and dynamics with a great focus on the distribution and transfer of weight, and use of the body tension. The use of weight as a physical element that allows us to move quickly and light, and all the creativity that exists with the parts that are free in relation to the floor.
We will also explore how to convert the so-called “tricks” into simply “movements,” and we will work on the creativity and transitions around them. In relation to this, there is a great focus on were our focus/presence is in relation to the movements, in order to clearly show or hide the places that we push from, using missdirection.
Within this entire search, we will sometimes play with limitations in the body, to find new paths, and sometimes a better momentum with the rest of the parts that are available, so that, once we can access the entire body, we will function in a more optimal way.
